Mine was doing the same thing! But I fixed it by holding the button and plugging it in at the same time! It worked just fine for me! It might work for y'all! (:

This is a very common feature on these types of simple, high-volume, low-cost home appliances known as a safety fault. This fault will temporarily (or permanently) disable the appliance and happens for several reasons: (1) an over-temp (high heat) occurrence, (2) an over-power (power surge) occurrence, (3) an under-power (power outage or trickle power) occurrence, (4) an over-time occurrence (auto-off fails), (5) a short-circuit occurrence (exposed/crossed/frayed wires, etc.). Fortunately, it uses a digital "fuse" system and can be reset by the user. However, there is no universal reset process on SoftHeat products so you just have to play with it until you figure it out (customer service dept is no help). Mine is a Kaz SoftHeat HP980PT, with a red power indicator/power-off button and 4 green heat setting buttons. Mine faulted after a heavy storm caused multiple power outages and power surges in my neighborhood. The green light on the highest heat setting button was flashing on mine. Here's how I fixed it: (1) unplugged both ends of power cord and straightened out the cord, then plugged back in to the heating pad end. (2) While holding down the flashing light button, I plugged back in to the wall outlet. (3) While still holding down the flashing light button, pressed and held down the red power-off button, then while still holding down the red power button, I released the flashing light button, followed by releasing the power-off button. This stopped the flashing green light and caused the red power indicator light to stay on (steady-on). It works fine now. Note: Some models have an actual hard fuse in addition to the digital fault feature or possibly only a simple fuse (without the digital fault system). These fuses can the found at many retail stores and then very easily replaced. I hope this helps some of you!!!

Just note the chip number and Google it for the data sheet.
when you found the actual data sheet read the pinout diagram of the chip to find out the Vcc pin.
you have to cut the link of Vcc pin of the chip and the chip will stop working.

Not much you can do. A doctor is needed to either perform surgery or use ultrasound and break up the stones and then remove them.

Replacing old batteries with New one of the Exact same Specification or rating should solve the problem. If not You should call Service center of the Brand to solve the exact problem if its still in Warranty or Guarantee period.

First of all we need to rule out other causes of excessive day time sleepiness before blaming all that on the medicine. RLS itself can lead to insufficient sleep at night and excessive sleep during the day.
Another big problem due to obesity is Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Which leads to insufficient sleep at night and sudden and excessive sleepiness during the day.
I would suggest you talk to you doctor and can get a better history and perform a physical exam, he might refer you to a sleep specialist. In some people sleep study needs to be performed for further evaluation. The treatment will be focused on the underlying cause.
